Taking place Saturday, Sept. 13th through Sunday, Sept. 21st AEST, PAX Online is a nine-day digital event that will combine several of the industry’s largest events including PAX West, PAX AUS, and EGX. The free show will be streaming live content 24-hours a day and is slated to feature community activities, esports events, can’t-miss panels from fan-favourite industry creatives, journalists, and content creators, and hands-on demos from some of 2020’s most anticipated titles.
